Finally a Storm that will Favor Southern Mono County and the Southern Sierra. In that the Upper jet is diving a bit more south now with the front left exit region favoring the southern sierra and southern Central Sierra, The QPF’s bull’s-eye has been shifted south to near Mammoth Lakes now with between 2 to 3 feet of cold dry powder expected over the very upper elevations. Snow to water ratios will range from 10:1 then 12:1 with the very back-end of the storm 15:1 is possible. However, the Dweebs point out that a good part of the storm will be at 12:1. So no Platinum Powder Alert. However, the snow will be light and powdery! It will be a very cold holiday weekend! Highs Saturday near 20!…..Lows a little below zero Sunday AM.
The very latest guidance is indicating that the storm is speeding up a bit and so the higher amounts on Mammoth Mt may be in Jeopardy if it moves through faster.
This will be the icing on the cake for Mammoth Mountain, for the Christmas and Chanukah holiday’s and the best skiing conditions in years!
The week between Christmas and New Years looks dry now with the next storm being delayed until possibly the 3rd of January…
